The Philharmonic Orchestra Of Bogotá Add Their Voices To The Protests In Colombia

After only one week of protests in Colombia at least 25 people have lost their lives and many hundreds more have been injured. It is not only the global virus and the Colombian government’s inaction that is frustrating people because the protests began against a proposed government tax increase that many critics say would increase the inequality between the country’s citizens.

As it so often happens, the police forces hit the rightful protesters with violence and so the protests grow. As it also so often happens, musicians take up their musical arms and hit the streets. Some of those form the Philharmonic Orchestra of Bogotá who recently have been lending their artistic talents to raise the voices of their fellow citizens.
